Hello! I'm new here! Well my husband and I decided that we wanted our children close in age, well because my husband is military we only had a 3 month period to conceive. Well to our suprise we got pregnant the very first month! I'm about 5 weeks along and my son is 7 months old, although developementally he's only a 5 month old because he was born 2 months premature. So it will really be like have my kids 13 months apart! Right after we found out I'm pregnant we were told my husband would be deployed pretty much until I deliver and then only home for a few weeks.Now I've been thinking about it, how in the world do you carry around a big baby who can't walk yet when your farther in the pregnancy? How do you get both in and out of the car if the oldest isn't walking? I'm very nervous about doing this alone for a while, my husband will be home for good by the end of the next summer, and we knew he would be gone sometimes, but not to this extent (it's usually small increments that are spaced out). Any tips? We're moving to a huge bottom floor apartment which should really help...any advice would be great!
